Great quality blinds, outstanding price. Packed and shipped properly with no breakage or issues. Sturdy hanging features with clear instructions for hanging either inside or outside window frame. They are a bit more colorful than pictured on my computer screen (colors can vary by monitor) -- with a tad more red/purple hue. But they're perfect for our living room. Light filtering in daytime is fantastic. Room is noticeably cooler when blinds are down. Visibility is blocked during the day. At night, they are still transparent, however -- the window is not as clear as if it had nothing on it, but the light from the inside of the house allows for muted see-through visibility from the outside. You could add (glue or staple) a thin panel of fabric to the backside of the shade, if preferred, to block visibility. Overall, outstanding value and product.
